49ers interested in trading for Revis (link provided)

If they're going to trade picks, I'd rather they trade to move up in the first so that they can get one of the two top corners. I agree with Grant Cohen on this - either Milliner or Rhodes (which they could probably get into the teens to select) can step right in and be a productive cover corner at a low cost with a long career ahead of him. In fact, they probably have enough picks to move up in the first and the second. They could get a top notch starting corner and one of the better defensive linemen with their first two picks that way.

Don't want to mortgage the future either, no guarentees they are as good as you think till they suit up and have to face Fritz and Megatron. Look at Patrick Peterson-high pick, just a so so corner.

Right, but there is no guarantee that Revis is still the same player he was before his injury either. At least when you roll the dice on a high draft pick at the corner position, you can be pretty sure you're going to get a starter at the lowest possible cost.

In those 2 scenarios, I think Revis is the better bet. He "might" not be the same shutdown corner, but he's still an above average guy even with the knee injury that most OCs will try to pass away from. A rookie corner will need at least 2 yrs in the making, and by that time other needs will arise for this team.

We're built to win NOW, and I think we need to take advantage of this 2-3 year window. Revis is the better option, IMO.
Read 'em & weep. This guy is NOT for us. Unless you want to destroy the franchsie like the Jets did.

Excellent article!

What rational person thought Revis was for the 49ers?

He costs way too much money, is far too much of a diva, and it remains to be seen how he'll play after the injury.

I hope the 49ers can find a player in the draft who becomes anything like a healthy Revis.

He actually doesn't cost that much money for the 2013 year ($6M cap figure, which is cheaper than Carlos Rogers). If he plays back into form, he'll command $10-$12M per year as a 28 year-old free agent in 2014 and he'd be worth it. If he doesn't get back to where he was, whoever he ends up playing for this year is only on the line for that $6M. That's it.

Agree the only factor if he becomes a 49er is what the Jets want for him that is it. Baalke won't offer a huge deal for him but I like our chances!

Exactly. If they want too much for Revis, then eff them....they can keep him. But if they're reasonable in their demands knowing that nobody in their right mind would give up a whole lot for Revis not knowing how he'll respond to rehab, then it might make sense.

Article does a good job explaining why the Jets have little leverage in trade talks. If Baalke is treating this as a 1 year rental, then there is no way that giving up a mid-round pick will destroy the franchise. (My hope is that Baalke does not give up more than a mid-round pick).

If Revis walks the Jets get a 3rd round comp pick so they aren't going to trade him for a mid round pick. Any team that trades for him at bare minimum the conversation would start at a 2nd.

The Jets having him on the roster does create some distractions with the media but if you're the Jets you know Revis can't hold out and has to play his best football so unless your getting at least a 2nd and some change you're better off just keeping him and having him help your team.

Ultimately I think the Jets wind up having to keep him and wait till the trading deadline where he can prove he's healthy and can play at a high level and you might get a contender that gets hit with the injury bug and needs a CB like Revis even if it's a rental. Like us for example in that we might be more inclined to swing a deal if say Justin Smith went down or a couple of CBs were out for an extended amount of time.
